The Gikaru Farmer's Cooperative Society, located further south than where most Kenyan coffees from Nyeri district originate, is responsible for managing the five small regional factories.
A factory is the Kenyan term for a wet mill that serves a distinct micro-region. Ichamara, a community in Kenya's Central Province, is the location of one of five "factories" that form the Gikaru Farmers Cooperative Society.
Our Dark Kenya AA Nyeri Ichamara coffee is sourced from family-owned farms in the Nyeri region and is processed by Gikaru's Ichamara Factory. These particular Kenyan coffee beans are grown between the eastern Aberdare mountain range and western slopes of Mt. Kenya.
